Lecrae has recently become one of the biggest names in all of Christian hip-hop. I admit that I wasn't really sure what to expect from the sophomore project "After the Music Stops" but I bought it anyways because people were telling me that Lecrae's music was hot. Although I typically favor rugged, underground east coast hip-hop, following a few listens of "After the Music Stops" I quickly became a Lecrae fan.
Right from the beginning on "After the Music Stops" Lecrae lets the listener know what his purpose is. It is to be able to fellowship with cats, disciple them, and reach out to and witness to the unbelievers. He makes it clear that his goal is not to blow up, or boast in himself; but his goal is to point listeners to Christ whether he is on stage or or off stage.
Lecrae makes it plain that he wants to live a true Christian life even following a show, "After the Music Stops". I can honestly say that if this album was all "dirty south" type beats it probably wouldn't appeal to me as much. Don't get me wrong though. I am really feeling some of the down south flavor on this album.
I'm also feelin the head nodder "Unshamed" featuring Tedashii. These two members of the Clique make it real clear they live by Romans On both songs he shows his compassion for unbelievers in a heartfelt manner.
I was diggin Lecrae's approach as it was not judgmental but he was reaching cats where they were at on the emotional level. Lecrae demonstrates his story telling ability on "Death Story" and "Praying for You" which are both over sentimental type beats. Lecrae shows his transparency on "Praying for You" by admitting at the end the whole song was about him and his spiritual struggles.
Crae shows his desire to defend the faith on songs like "It's Your World" featuring banging verses from Redeemed Thought and Sho who are just a few of the guests off this CD that contribute greatly. JR, Diamone and Cam bring forth some awesome vocals on various tracks and help balance the album out with their sweet sounding hooks.
Cam's acoustic "El Shaddai" is a marvelous jam and brings me to worship the Lord everytime I hear it. Lecrae's flows are clever but straight to the point and his delivery is very clear. What really stands out on this CD is the content and Lecrae's desire to decrease while Christ increases. This project is one that will encourage Christians to go out and disciple someone, share their faith, be thankful for a God that loves them, and help them to reflect on the gospel.
Unbelievers who hear this project will benefit from the simplicity of Lecrae's terminology and great analogies and they will be able to see that Lecrae is coming in love and not just pointing the finger at them. Don't want to see ads?
